This book shows the panorama of destruction as it unfolded, and also reveal the extraordinary turnaround that is now taking place, thanks both to the social movements and the emergence of new environmental markets. Exploring the role of human hands in destroying and saving this vast forested region, The Fate of the Forest pivots on the murder of Chico Mendes, a legendary labor and environmental organizer who was assassinated after successful confrontations with big ranchers
